Mid-Week Quickie

Y'know, it's kind of amusing to think that it could take hours upon hours to construct a crossword puzzle, only to have most solvers tear through it in under ten minutes.

I whipped this 14x13 grid together in about 30 minutes. So I thought that it might be fun to clue it at a level of difficulty so hard that it would actually take longer for, say, a C Division ACPTer to solve than it took to create. (Not counting the cluing, of course, which took considerably longer.)


Oh, I could have made the clues so vague that solving it would be virtually impossible. But, as is my wont, I opted for clues that are (hopefully) interesting, fun and, as always, fresh. So I don't think it ended up as being all that difficult.
